    Can someone please verify if this GAB 25 is authentic or not? Specifically I am concerned about the grenade on the bottom left of the badge.

    I would like to see better photos (the catch, the hinge, the rivets, maker marks, etc.) in a higher resolution.

    I am happy to be proven wrong, but I think this may be a bad one. Or at least I'm not comfortable based on these photos.

    If it is a fake, I think it is a very very good one. At first I thought it might be a Monday hang over job and the employee did not align the eagle up with the wreath correctly when riveting them together. But then I saw my biggest concern....the number plate. The font's do not appear to match the RK designs that I have seen.

    While not a direct comparison, here is my " Light Strike" RK 50 (photos are sub par as it is not yet in my possession - 2 more payments to go) that was sourced direct from a Vet along with some other awards.

    Again, I am happy to stand corrected.

    Edit: Here is a link to an actual RK 25. Compare the fonts

    And my "50"

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    I am convinced this is a reproduction, passed on it.

    There are some super high quality RK GAB fakes out there. I think this is one of them
